Talk:Proposed features/Race tracks

Nothing seems to have been proposed really. I recently added silverstone race circtui, and when I was up there i noted that there are 3 differnt track widths. They vary by a great amount so I think it is inportant to tag them accordingly. There is the narrow pit stops, the main track, and then a medium width track that seems to appear on circuits not used for F1, and also at the scicane into the pits. I used the following in osmarender to get the widths to as close as correct as posible. Since nothing is in here yet, Could this by a proposed standard?

Here's the sections of the file that seem inportant...

.highway-racetrack-casing { stroke-width: 3.3px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; stroke: #000000; fill: none; }

.highway-racetrack-core { stroke-width: 3px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; stroke: #FFFFFF; fill: none; }

.highway-racetrackmedium-casing { stroke-width: 2.3px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; fill: none; stroke: #000000; }

.highway-racetrackmedium-core { stroke-width: 2px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; stroke: #ffffff; fill: none; }

.highway-racetracksmall-casing { stroke-width: 1.4px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; fill: none; stroke: #000000; }

.highway-racetracksmall-core { stroke-width: 1.2px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; stroke: #ffffff; fill: none; }

I made shore this rendered after the airstrips, becasue a lot of track sits ontop of the runway, and sometimes has twisted routes retarmacked and laid out ontop of an old airstrip. I road the width of the runways a few times and the render width of my runways is now set as:

.aeroway-runway-core { stroke-width: 8px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; stroke: #CCCCCC; fill: none; ) }

.aeroway-runway-casing { stroke-width: 9px; stroke-linecap: butt; stroke-linejoin: round; stroke: #000000; fill: none; }

Horses

There are also race tracks for things that don't use an internal combustion engine. Horse racing, greyhounds, cycles, etc. Perhaps there should be a use=car, use=horse type of tag to indicate what kind of things you might find on the track.

  • Horse=yes car=yes tags could do it, as they already exsist. As long as they are used to define what a racetrack is used for, rather than what could in theory legally go on there then that would be fine. Ben. 21:32, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Currently Implemented

The following tags are currently implemented in tiles@home/Osmarender:

  • landuse=raceway
    • use_status=disused
    • use_status=dismantled

Implemented as areas, because they can be quite wide and can also vary considerably.

  • Why were linear ways not included? only closed ways? I'm not gunna double up the node/segment amount of the circuit I've added, just to get it to render; with, if anything, less acuracy. Ben. 21:32, 16 March 2007 (UTC)



Something new ? I'm interested too in a linear tag for race tracks. Because of the different uses and surfaces it would be great to have 3 tags :

  • leisure=track
  • surface=mud/grass/asphalt/wood/... (for rendering ?)
  • use=car/horse/roller/foot/motorcycle/bicycle/...
